The Baltimore Hebrew Institute (formerly Baltimore Hebrew University) at Towson University
is committed to supporting the education of Jewish studies scholars, educators and
communal professionals who excel in their chosen fields.
We offer generous scholarships and work with each student to custom tailor a program
that meets their goals. In addition, Baltimore Hebrew Institute offers engaging non-degree
courses and lectures that provide opportunities for adults to deepen their understanding
of Jewish and Israeli culture, history, education and community.
Baltimore Hebrew Institute (BHI) has three main areas of focus:
To provide community enrichment in ways that engage and welcome all who are interested.
To provide adult learners with an array of continuing education course offerings,
special programs and community lectures in Judaic studies.
